Face Forward Bridal has high standards and a genuine approach for styling brides. Every bride deserves to look and feel beautiful, confident, and one of a kind on her special day. We encourage a relaxed and fun atmosphere during the makeup design and hair styling sessions.

Our work for Anne Hathaway's wedding was featured in Vogue and many other publications. We had a wonderful day styling her wedding party, family and business colleagues. It was an absolute joy to work with Anne, her warm and genuine personality gave us a glimpse of what a true beauty she is.

We will create any look you envision, romantic and natural, vintage or formal, edgy and trendy. As makeup artists and hair stylists, we work together as a close communicating team and provide you and the bridal party an effortless, stress free experience prior to the wedding. It's about embracing your visions and watching them come to life.

We look forward to making your day as beautiful as you deserve. Thank you for considering Face Forward Bridal.

FaceForward Bridal came to my venue in Pebble Beach to do hair and makeup in our bridal suite. Cara and her team are incredible. She is professional, talented, timely and kind. Her demeanor puts you at ease. My bridesmaids and I were all going for a classic/natural look (the "best version of yourself" ) and Cara and her team did just that. They all looked gorgeous! We all had fun throughout the day getting ready, talking and laughing. Cara was a part of my amazing day and I can't thank her enough. I highly recommend her.

Cara Hopkins is a class act - incredibly professionalism, extremely flexible, and she actually calmed me on my wedding day with her bright and cheery personality!

Cara was so much more than our makeup stylist! - She brought music, upbeat attitude, kindness, and great input. She made us all feel so comfortable during a time that can often be stressful!

It was a magical day and Cara elevated it! Thank you so much for being so flexible, staying late to finish up the moms, and making me feel beautiful and thrilled for the big day!

From Start to Finish truly a fantastic hair and makeup experience. I was the Mother of the BRIDE! I went with my daughter, Jessica to her trial hair and makeup appointment, and noticed immediately the flow of focus, attention to detail, and how comfortable the total experience was. My daughter spoke up when she saw something different in the hair styling and then follow up with Cara to request those changes. Cara was open, and immediately responded to her ideas and changes. It was the total package for the Bride, six girls, (no drama), and two Mom's. So enjoyable, so personal, so fun. I highly recommend Face Forward for your next event, if you want to be pampered and relaxed. It added to our wedding planning and made our Wedding Day wonderful, as I can say honestly, let's start our day like this always, it was perfect.

Cara and her team were amazing! I booked her for my wedding and what can I say, she made all of my girls and I feel and look beautiful! Not only was Cara responsive to my needs, she's passionate about using GOOD products and taking care of your skin. From the moment I spoke on the phone with her, I knew she was perfect for my wedding day. She takes the whole process very seriously and personalized every detail to make sure it was right for me. I would absolutely recommend Cara to anyone bride. Honestly, I'm sad my wedding is over with because now I don't know when I'll see her again! Also, I'm a loyal customer to buying her skincare products now. They're amazing

On my wedding day, Cara took care of my make-up and hair. With my thick waist-long wavy red hair and light, freckled skin I was a bit concerned on how I would look. Many times, stylists wanted to completely cover up my freckles or try to fake a tanned face which just looks wrong and artificial. Cara was very responsive to these concerns and found just the right colors for my complexion (which worked just beautiful for our sunset ocean pictures). My hair was straightened and curled at the ends. I wore it open that day, and, despite the wind, the curls lasted for a really long time. I was and still am very happy with my weddig looks

Cara and Nikki did an amazing job with our hair and make up! I asked to have a more natural look for my make up and Cara nailed it. I felt like myself and it complemented my dress perfectly.
I also loved the waterfall braid that Nikki did for me and it stayed put all day.
There was another hair stylist that came with them due to a mix-up about the number of bridesmaids I had and I believe she was pretty new to the team. I am not mentioning names as people have their off days, but her styling of one of my bridesmaid's hair needed to be redone completely by Nikki. We had time and Nikki did a beautiful job on my bridesmaid's hair so she saved the day! She also came up with a beautiful low ponytail for my Mother, who did not have a specific hairstyle in mind.
You can't go wrong with this duo! They have wonderful energy and are fantastic at what they do. :)

Cara and her team did a phenomenal job doing hair and make up at my wedding. We had 11 people getting hair done and 7 people getting make up; even with that many people we stayed on a great schedule and were able to get ready in a relaxing atmosphere. Everyone's hair and make up looked phenomenal and lasted throughout the entire evening. They are fairly priced and do an exceptional job. I would highly recommend them!

I went back and forth between wanting to do my own make-up and getting it done for my wedding day. I am so happy I decided to get my hair and make-up done by Cara and Nikki. They really understood my vision and created a natural look for me along with my mom and sister. The whole process was very calming and enjoyable. I would highly recommend them for your special day!
